Plants, Essential Multi-Taskers and Lifesavers
Plants are Amazing ... And so are all the specials on-sale now at Moana ... here.
The research on the benefits of plants has exploded in the last 10 years owing in good part to global warming and real estate values. In many ways this interest is obvious given photosynthesis produces Oxygen and digests Carbon Dioxide and landscaping your home enhances first impressions (and thus value). We have attempted here to provide links to just some of the relevant data that has established facts such as $1 of landscaping adds $1.09 of home value and increases from there, unlike any other home improvement expenditure.
We also recognize the current hot trends inherent with plants like local food production, organic gardening, container planting and edible landscaping. And, the calming impact of nature's plants on the human condition. We hope you will help us add relevant links to research articles of interest and importance.
